Mary Musgrove’s Restorative

(1 customer review)


Fancy yourself ill? This herbal peppermint and eucalyptus soap is wonderful for a cold during a nice steamy shower. A lovely wintery scent to be enjoyed by anyone!

Mary Musgrove, Anne Elliot’s sister, frequently plays the part of an invalid and hopes for solicitous attention from all. This soap is inspired by this delightful bit of comedy. Anne “cures” Mary after she comes to visit, but an herbal restorative might have done just as well!

“I am so ill I can hardly speak. I have not seen a creature the whole morning!”~ Mary Musgrove of Persuasion, by Jane Austen.

    The perfect bar to buy for my sister, to whom I complain of all my aches and pains. She loved the fresh scent and couldn’t believe how nice it feels on her hands. Now I just need to order a bar for myself.
